Arctic Cannon Larvae are enemies in Pikmin 3. They are bright green with a lavender underbelly, and a variant of Armored Cannon Beetle Larvae accustomed to cold conditions.

Unlike their rock-spitting relatives, Arctic Cannon Larvae launch giant snowballs. While mostly equivalent to boulders in functionality, snowballs are incapable of killing Pikmin, instead simply picking them up and carrying them along until they crash into something; Winged Pikmin won't even be picked up, only knocked back. Captains will be picked up as well, which also traps them until the snowball is destroyed. As a result, the creature is annoying at best, and is only a threat if the Pikmin it rolls away end up next to some other enemy or hazard without the player noticing, but can be killed with relative ease by any Pikmin type.
